We recently started the exciting, and terrifying, process of looking for and purchasing a vacation home in the Coachella Valley. As Canadian Residents, it was even more anxiety ridden as we were unfamiliar with all of the rules, regulations, extensive paperwork and issues that would go along with purchasing a property in another Country. Despite doing some in depth background work, we were not fully prepared nor did we have the knowledge to complete this process on our own. We were extremely fortunate to have Elaine Stewart as our realtor. Not only did she show us a large variety of properties in our price range, taking several days out of her schedule to do this for us, but she stayed with and assisted us from beginning to end. From initial offer day through to closing, Elaine was there for us as an incredible source of advice and information. We honestly would not have stuck with it, if it was not for her! Elaine has spent countless hours going through the entire process with us, assisting us in completion of paperwork and providing an invaluable source of other information that new home owners/foreign owners would find difficult locating on their own. We have already advised family and friends that we would highly recommend Elaine Stewart if they were to consider purchasing/selling any property in the Valley. - John and Tina D
We found Elaine and her staff of Cari and Sergio to be very pleasant, prompt and committed to helping us find exactly what we were looking for in our vacation home. We appreciated that they always responded quickly to all correspondence and provided us with an abundance of information. We would highly recommend Elaine to anyone looking to purchase property. - Brent and Kathy W.
We are so excited to be here in our new house. We are only here for a few days right now (we head back Tuesday late afternoon). Meeting with contractors etc. We will be back at the end of February and would love to get together with you to catch up. It is not often that one can find a top realtor who is prepared to work hard with buyers who are in the early stages of a search for their dream home in the Desert. Elaine went out of her way to provide us with market information and came up with a list of homes in a number of different locations in the valley that she thought might fit our broad criteria. She displayed unlimited time and patience showing us several homes with pleasure. Her assistance led to us purchasing a home that fit our specifications perfectly. Her perseverance did not stop there. She worked hard to negotiate a very good price for the home that we fell in love with. Throughout the process, Elaine and her extremely hardworking, efficient and competent team were there to help answer questions and provide us with guidance on purchasing in the Desert. We would have no hesitation in recommending Elaine to assist anyone with their property transactions in the Desert. She is a realtor who is knowledgeable, hard working, trustworthy and an absolute pleasure to work with. - Johann and Denise B
Hi Elaine! I'm a big believer in recognizing great accomplishments. Yours is being named the 31st top realtor in Remax's USA system out of 55,000+ agents. That's just amazing Elaine and well deserved....hard, smart work always pays off. Continued success, - Lyle H
We have been coming to the Palm Springs area for several years and have been interested in purchasing property when the opportunity presented itself. Being from out of state we knew no one who could guide us or give us good recommendations about areas prices values to say nothing of the process of buying a home. My wife did a lot of the initial leg work and became knowledgeable of the area market and we went to open houses and continued to look for a property that would meet our needs and at the same time be a good value. At that time we were fortunate to meet Cory Alan who has been an absolute Godsend for us. Being from the Midwest we had one way we were used to when it came to buying a home and then having it financed. We quickly learned that doing things in California was a whole lot different. Without CoryÕs help we would have never been able to finally purchase the home we have been looking for these past several years. First of all CoryÕs demeanor is one of calm professionalism and his reassuring manner has made it a lot easier for me to see this process through to completion. He is very knowledgeable of the overall market and works with clients to find the home that is right for them. He never tries to interject his bias into the process and is tireless in his effort to be sure his customers are happy with their purchase. More than that Cory knows the process of procurement from start to finish. He makes sure that every aspect of the process is transparent and deals with his clients up front and makes sure you are aware of every aspect of the home you are buying the good and the potential bad. Finally once you commit to the purchase he works tirelessly with everybody involved in the process to bring the closing process to completions as soon as possible and to his clientÕs satisfaction. I can say definitively without Cory and his tenacity we would never have been able to successfully complete our purchase. We owe everything to his willingness to see this process through for us. He is not only a great Realtor but in the process has become a great friend. My wife and I would highly recommend Cory to anyone who not only wants to buy or sell their home but who wants to actually enjoy the process. We hope to be in this area for many years and without question will use Cory for our next transaction. - Dan H. Evans
